An interesting day Around Anchorage & Wordless Wednesday 2/9/2011 with a few words
Moose were everywhere this morning. This one is outside Denali Elementary, which is almost downtown. Is he sticking his tongue out at me? Is that little girl sticking her tongue out at me? Sheesh!
These gals were near West Chester Lagoon. Notice the collar on mom? That helps Alaska Department of Fish and Game track their movements. It's amazing how much moose move around town. If you get the chance, watch Moose on the Loose on Animal Planet. My hero, now retired, Rick Sinnot and Jessy Coaltrane of ADF&G is highlighted. They show how they have managed to keep wildlife like moose and bear in an urban setting without major issues.
This guy had a comfortable spot to watch and be out of the way. What was that song, "Up on the Roof"?
A gazillion Bohemian Waxwings were attacking the trees in the neighborhood for about 5 minutes and then they were gone. This is just a small group of them. It was neat watching them swarm, stop, swarm, stop and then they were gone.
